We care about our people, our community and our environment
Synaptek is a responsible and progressive business and we take social responsibility seriously, providing a working environment that treats employees, customers and suppliers fairly. We also support local community initiatives and we are environmentally conscious wherever possible.
At Synaptek, we value and respect diversity in the workplace. We demonstrate a fair recruitment policy, employing people from all backgrounds with a vast range of skills and interests.
Free from discrimination
Our workplace is free from unlawful or unfair discrimination complying with our equality and diversity policy. We are committed to ensuring that our employees work in a safe, inclusive and fair environment.
We promote equal opportunities by pushing development, career advancements and training to support all employees in their journey at Synaptek.
Synaptek is passionate about supporting our local community and investing in putting Birmingham firmly on the global technology map.
Our parent company, Spherica, is a Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce Member so we contribute to helping support local events and sharing our knowledge and experience within this community. We’re also engaging with various other local initiatives designed to inspire and support the next generation into careers in technology.
Where possible, we use suppliers that are local to our customers’ businesses, such as local courier services, to provide the most cost-effective solutions and support localisation.
We’re proud to support:
- Birmingham Tech’s Inspire series
- Representatives of the Slack Community
- Aston University’s AstonHack
We pride ourselves on leading a responsible business and ensuring we follow transparent, sustainable and ethical processes.
We’re delighted that as part of this journey, we’ve embarked on a carbon assessment with our parent company, Spherica, and are delighted to have received our carbon assessed certificate from Carbon Footprint. We’re working towards reducing and offsetting our carbon emissions, so we’re not only delivering more sustainable technology solutions for our customers, but we’re also building a business that is committed to doing its part to drive change.
At Synaptek, we ensure that we follow sustainable methods of disposal of hardware and we are as paperless as possible.
Reducing our environmental impact
Where possible, we have always supported flexible location working practices, including home-based or client-based, thus reducing the environmental impact of our workforce. We use a shared serviced office as our base, which is environmentally efficient as we only utilise it when required. We also encourage and monitor the use of greener modes of transport, such as trains, for business travel.
